The Grizzlies are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 Thursday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Pistons are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Thursday games and 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The under is 8-3 in Grizzlies last 11 road games. The over is 4-0 in Pistons last 4 overall. The Grizzlies are 16-5 ATS in the last 21 meetings in Detroit and 20-7 ATS in the last 27 meetings.

The Memphis Grizzlies should be favored because they’re the better team on paper, but they’ve also lost to the Miami Heats third stringers and just lost to the Magic as 6.5 point favorites. The Detroit Pistons haven’t had much preseason success lately, but they’re at home, and it’s the last meaningless game for both clubs. I’m just not laying points with the Grizzlies given their last two efforts. It’s the Pistons and the points or pass for me.
